Lieske Burger sustained head injuries and was admitted to hospital last night.

Her friend, Maria Arangies, was shot dead during the incident at her house in Mooivallei Park between 21:00 and 22:00 last night.

North West police spokesperson, Kelebogile Moleko, has told Courant the robbers shot Arangies outside her residence and Burger was assaulted inside the house.
